Councilman Matt Schultz attended the Glenn Beck Honor Rally in Washington D.C. on August 28th at the Lincoln Memorial.
“I have been to several Tea Party events over the last year and I thought that Glenn Beck’s Honor Rally would be similar to these events and I wanted to see it firsthand. It was not at all what I expected it to be, but I was not disappointed. I came away from the Honor Rally with a greater respect for the sacrifice that so many people have made and continue to make so that we can be free,” said Schultz.
“I was standing the entire time next to the reflection pool on the side of the Vietnam War Memorial. It was an amazing sight. I had never seen so many people in my entire life. Everyone seemed excited and there was a lot of clapping and cheering during the event. The crowd surrounded the Lincoln Memorial and spanned all the way to the Washington Monument and beyond,” said Schultz.
“I think that Glenn Beck was trying to share a message that transcends political parties and churches. It was a message of principles and of God. The main point I took away was that if we as individuals and as a Nation make a renewed effort to focus on the principles of Faith, Hope, and Charity, that no matter what our political and religious disagreements, God will bless us individually and as a Nation,” said Schultz.
Matt Schultz was first elected to the Council Bluffs City Council in 2005 and is in his second term. Matt Schultz won the Republican nomination for Secretary of State in a three way primary in June. He is a graduate of Creighton Law School and the University of Iowa. Matt is married with three children and is an Attorney at the law firm of Schultz & Watson, LLP.
